As the summer holidays draw to an end, it is almost time for pupils to head back to school across Glasgow but it won’t be long before they are off again for the September weekend.

Time passes very quickly with it seeming like only a couple of weeks ago that primary schools and high schools in Glasgow stopped for the summer holidays, and if time continues to pass so quickly, it’s best to get prepared and have these key dates noted down.

There have recently been calls for extended holidays during the Christmas break with parents being asked their thoughts on the draft holiday plans between 2024-2026.
